THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Cinderella Star Ann Harada Shares Her Theatregoing Experiences
19 Jun 2013
The original cast ofFalsettoland (1990)
"I was lucky enough to see this at Playwrights Horizons, and I don't think I have ever been as totally absorbed and moved as I was that night. I was already a big fan of William Finn's music (I wore out my cassette tape of March of the Falsettos), but Falsettoland put me over the edge. Like everybody else in the theatre, I lost a lot of friends around that time, and this show gave me so much comfort."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
